10 Best Instagram Worthy Spots in Edinburgh
I’ve lived here long enough to know which spots I like the best in Edinburgh for getting a niiiiiice photo. I’ve put together 10 of my top spots in this post- these are all a bit obvious but I still think they’re the best out there.

I’m also putting together a list of IG spots that aren’t super obvious (and quite specific places, like certain walls for backdrops), so keep your eyes peeled for that.
Here we goooo…

Botanic Gardens

Don’t miss out on the Botanic Gardens– if you need a bit of greenery in your life (or shots), this is the place.

Greenery at @rbgedinburgh 🌴🌿🍃

The Vennel

Need a good picture of the castle? Go to the Vennel – it’s right by the Grassmarket by Brown’s Place. I’ve been a few times and there’s almost always no people there so you can take as many photos as you like without standing in someones way.

Disney’s got nothing on Edinburgh Castle ✌️👑

Hyde & Son

The most photogenic coffee shop out there. And it’s a plus that they make delicious coffee 😉

New(ish) kid on the block @hydeandson is practically designed for Instagramming ☕️

The Shore

The shore in Leith is always a good spot for an Insta photo.

On the shore with @ohhforshore earlier tonight. Loving Leith more & more 💙

Victoria Street

This ones super obvious and just screams Edinburgh. But how can you not take a photo of this beautiful street? (esp if you’re a HP fan) ✨

Dean Village

Honestly, everything in Dean Village is instagrammable. Every street, building and car (obviously).

Arthur’s Seat and/or Salisbury Crags

This is one of my fave spots eveeeer, especially in the summer. When the sun is out you can get amazing photos from up here.

Summer nights on top of our favourite volcano ✨

Old Town

Anywhere in the Old Town is good for the camera but my personal favourites are the closes (this one below was taken in Advocate’s Close).

Calton Hill

Oh, how I love this hill. I love the views and I also love sitting on the monument. The only downside is that if it’s even a tiny bit windy, you can really feel it up there!

Circus Lane

This is such an obvious one, but I really do love Circus Lane. The quaintest and prettiest street in Edinburgh, for sure ❤️

Winter vibes in the burgh today 🤦‍♀️❄️🌧
